Fitness businesses are becoming increasingly popular in rented company space in Milton Keynes, says a commercial property landlord in the city.

Two new clients have recently joined rapidly developing health-oriented hubs at the centres at Denbigh Business Park, Bletchley Business Campus and the i-Centre, in Newport Pagnell.

Joe Muscat, chairman and principal of BUCKS-BIZ, said: “Our clients already include great businesses like MK Pole Fitness, PC Physiotherapy, Core Fitness Gym and Cross-Fit Milton Keynes and we have recently welcomed Hotpod Yoga and strength and conditioning training facility WEIGHT ‘N TEARS.

“It’s fascinating to see businesses of all kinds take space at BUCKS-BIZ and it is certainly a great opportunity for us to be as flexible as possible with the kind of space we have available.

“The needs of a health-oriented business are different to the needs of an IT company and so on but they all need the space to grow and we will bend over backwards to accommodate everyone.”

Hotpod Yoga is a highly successful franchised business with bases around the country. The business holds vinyasa yoga classes in inflatable, heated studios. The Milton Keynes franchise is run by director and yogi Emma Brinsden.

Emma said: “I fell in love with the concept of hot yoga in an inflatable pod with controlled music and lighting. This is the perfect environment to do hot yoga as it totally cuts you off from the outside world, so it’s easier to concentrate and meditate.

“Opening my business in Newport Pagnell is also ideal due to direct access from the M1 and being close to the city. The free-parking and café at the i-Centre are great perks for my customers too, making it easy for them to visit and keep themselves fit and healthy.”

Strength and conditioning training facility WEIGHT ‘N TEARS, at MK:TWO Business Centre, Barton Road, Bletchley, is owned by Ryan Kruger.

The facility specialises in cross-functional training with the use of Kettlebells.

Jay Raj, director of Clock Property, a Milton Keynes based firm of surveyors and commercial property agents, says that enquiries for commercial space since the start of the year have increased with a noticeable rise from leisure and retail operators.

He said: “The positive swing in economic activity over the past 12 months or so has been mainly attributed to pent-up consumer spending.

“This now looks set to drive increased demand for commercial property from office and industrial occupiers who now have greater confidence to invest in new infrastructure, staff and premises.”

BUCKS-BIZ rents in excess of 250 units all with dedicated point to point fibre internet. Units are of varying sizes from one person serviced offices to a 10 studio filming complex, workshops, warehouses, trade counters, kitchens, health suites and a host more.

Licences start at £240 per month all inclusive of rent, business rates, service charges, building insurance, CCTV cameras, red care intruder alarms to individual units, night patrols and a lot more.
